There are two main types of Ulpan: government-sponsored and privately subsidized Ulpanim.Note: In both types of Ulpanim, in order to register you can either contact your counselor at the local branch of the Misrad HaKlita, see here, or you can apply online after creating an account here. There is a very clear English YouTube video explaining the process here.
Ulpan courses of the Ministry of Education are available all over the country and the address that appears on your Teudat Zehut usually determines which one you are eligible for.
In addition to the official government-run Ulpanim, there are also many privately run Ulpanim, either in-person or online that are available for Olim to participate in using vouchers issued by the Misrad HaKlita (משרד הקליטה), Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, that will reimburse the cost in multiple payments. A list of approved private programs eligible for voucher use is available here.
Contact your Klita counselor at your local branch of the Misrad HaKlita to receive a referral for Ulpan.
Alternatively, you can apply online as described in section 2. If multiple programs are available, consider visiting them to learn more before registering.
